Why should we act morally? What justification is to be found in moral demands? This lucid, pithy, and eminently readable book examines the arguments in favor of the claims of moral demands to be found in contemporary ethical theory, arguments deriving from Kant's attempt to provide a foundation for morality.

Industry Reviews

'This is a very provocative book, which in English ought to make a unique contribution to the discussion of the 'Why be moral?' question, and also to join issue with recent discussions about the relation of morality to autonomy and the human good, in the writings of such English speaking philosophers as MacIntyre, Williams and Foot.' Allen Wood, Cornell University 'This is an eminently well-argued book. The translation by Theodore Talbot is almost invariably fluent.' Review of Metaphysics
